Playing with a New Pattern I Found

I found a pattern to cover a sewing tape measure.  I did not have the right yarn so I used #10 Knit Cro Sheen.  I really liked the way the body of the pattern came out but had a problem with the flower part.  So I gathered the center of the green so it was snug.  I then made up a flower of my own and glued it to the top of the tape measure after I had sewn a shank button to the center of the flower.  Next time I will put the button to retract the tape on the non-flower side.  I think it will make it much easier to close.

This picture came out a little blurry but shows the tape part.  I love it. I think I will have to get more tape measures and make a few more.


  1. That's really pretty, it will make lovely gifts

  2. Very cute! I love the flower! :0)

  3. Tudy, this is just adorable and would make a great stocking stuffer for the sewer/quilter
